Orcs & Elves


Before John Carmack went and founded id Software (essentially creating the FPS genre with Wolfenstein and Doom), he was just another kid who liked to play Dungeons & Dragons with his friends. However, rather than playing set scenarios, teenage Dungeon...

The problem with the DS incarnation of Orcs & Elves is that it doesn't give enough incentive to buy it over, say, a $5 download for your cell phone. But if you don't have a cell phone, then I suppose having the game would be worth it. The game was...

Orcs & Elves


Inspired by the classics

The inspiration for the game goes deeper than Doom and Quake. While playing I kept thinking back to an old RPG classic (and one of my all time favorites) Eye of the Beholder where a team of heroes is gathered to find out what is going on underneath the...

Orcs & Elves Review


id Software brings the acclaimed mobile phone game to the Nintendo DS...

Occasionally rises to an entertaining level ; Fairly unique offering on the DS ; Struggling for a third

Archaic control setup ; Simplistic gameplay ; Mobile overtones

An intriguing game on mobile phones makes a reasonable translation to the Nintendo DS, but it's hard to look past the fact that Orcs & Elves feels dated and overly simplistic. If anything Orcs & Elves makes us hope that nobody will contemplate...

Orcs & Elves


Nostalgic dungeon crawlers, sign right up.

Orcs & Elves Review


A talking wand, barrels of brew and ugly monsters make for an enjoyable role-playing adventure.

Although it's easy to poke fun at the story, it harkens back to a day when hardcore role players locked themselves in their basements and played Dungeons & Dragons with friends, and because of that, Orcs & Elves has an old school charm missing from the...

Orcs & Elves - Review


If Orcs & Elves was released about 15 years or so ago on PCs, then it would have been a pretty successful RPG. Moving through a pseudo-3D dungeon and viewing things from a first-person perspective were pretty cutting edge concepts back in those days. ...

If you're looking for some fun role-playing light gameplay, then Orcs & Elves is for you.

Orcs & Elves


The Nintendo DS is one of the best selling systems of all time. According to Wikipedia, Nintendo has shipped close to 54 million units since its release in 2004. The stylish redesign, touch controls, speedy and efficient cartridge-based games, and...

Orcs & Elves Review for DS


Orcs & Elves for DS Review - Orcs & Elves is perfect fodder for the geek in you, and a half-an-hour train ride, but don't expect it to rock your world.

Orcs & Elves (2007)


In theory, even though it comes from Doom creators id Software, there’s little to recommend Orcs & Elves.
